Here we go

So, it turns out that having a preschooler and a baby can be a real distraction from everything else in the world. But while my children are and always will be my main focus, I am very blessed that my career just happens to be my other main passion in life. Since baby girl is not quite so needy anymore, I am excited to throw myself back into the world of videography, photography and all that other good stuff. Here we go!

It's been quite a while since I last posted.  I have no real excuses except life just gets in the way.  I plan on posting more frequently, and am throwing around an idea for a new theme to write about that just might fit in nicely on this blog.  Stay tuned?

Christmas gifts

Well, Christmas has come and gone. It's always sad when its over for another whole year, but I always get to the point where I am just ready to move on with my life already. My husband gave me not one, but two different kinds of film for Christmas, so I guess I better busy. More on that later.

John Howell, an Indianapolis newsboy, makes $.75 some days. Begins at 6 a.m., Sundays. (Lives at 215 W. Michigan St.) (LOC)

I flagged this one a while ago but never got around to posting about it. The Library of Congress has a whole set of images called "Photographer in the Picture" where, obviously, the photographer can be seen in the photo. While looking through the set, it was amazing to me that many of these shots were thought of as just mistakes and not given another thought (one even has a hole punched through the center). Looking at these pictures today as historical artifacts, it seems to me that they are actually improved by the little mistakes in the shadows. I love seeing that little glimpse into the world of when this picture was taken, what it was like for the photographer.

Oh, sweet mystery of life at last I've found you!

I finally was able to buy the missing battery for my Bell & Howell super 8 camera! It only took me, what, half a year to get it. I stopped by my local camera store yesterday and the guy just hands it to me off the shelf. If he only knew what I went through to get this tiny little battery! I know it would have been much simpler to just buy it online, but I can now happily say that my local camera shop worked for me.

So now I have a battery, some film stock and the camera. Hopefully it will all come together and I will have about two and a half minutes worth of test . . . keep your fingers crossed!

Sorry I have been mum lately.  The summer may be winding down but all of our activities certainly aren't.  In any case, I found this amazing animation tutorial from none other than Terry Gilliam.  I have always loved the Monty Python cut-paper style animation and now I can do it too!
